Posted on: February 12th, 2021 by brent

I pink I can runJoin the Krewe du YaYas at our 8th Annual I Pink I Can Run 4 miler run walk for breast cancer . 

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic and after speaking with local officials,  we believe the safest course of action is  to pivot our event from a live run/walk to a virtual event.  Although we won’t be together physically, we look forward to uniting our community virtually in the fight against breast cancer. 

How will this work?? Run or Walk ANYWHERE you like! The Virtual Run/Walk can be completed in your own neighborhood, at a local park, or even a treadmill. Sign up now, and then gather some friends, decide on a route, and, of course, plan how you’ll celebrate after you rock your 4 miler between February 20 and February 28, 2021.  

New this year.  ALL PARTICIPANTS  WILL RECEIVE A PERFORMANCE TECH SHIRT, a VIRTUAL BIB and A GREAT FINISHER  MEDAL!!   Shirts and medals will be available for local pick up AFTER the event or if preferred, they can be mailed directly to you for an additional charge of $5.00.  **** Please choose the mail option  when registering if you want your items sent to you directly.   Domestic shipping only.  

Local shirt/medal pick up will be determined at a later date (end of March 2021).  Stay tuned for more details.   

All proceeds from this event benefit The Keeping Abreast Foundations’ mammography and breast health programs.  The mission of the Keeping Abreast Foundation is to inspire hope and enhance life for those affected by breast cancer through early detection, advoca­cy, education and support services!     Because of your continued support, you have enabled our foundation to provide services to 1,548 individuals at a total cost of $307,158!

Pensacola Mardi Gras postpones kickoff

Posted on: December 28th, 2020 by Candy

PMG

Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc. is postponing the 2021 Season Kick-Off Celebration and Blessing  of the Krewe Fleets event previously scheduled on January 8th, 2021. This year, the event will  be moved to the month of May and will kick-off an even larger Pensacola “Carnivale  Celebration.”  

“We want to have the best Mardi Gras experience for our wonderful Krewes of Pensacola, in  the safest way possible for the entire community,” said Danny Zimmern, President of  Pensacola Mardi Gras, Inc. “This year, that is just going to look a little different from the  experience we all know and love, as we celebrate together in Carnivale”  

The decision to postpone derived from many long and detailed conversations between  Pensacola Mardi Gras, the Mayor, and City Staff with focus centered on public health. Due to  the current rising number of virus cases, the team members of Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc. and  the City of Pensacola staff agreed that postponing the event was the most responsible course of  action. This decision was difficult but will not mean a cancellation of ceremonies for  Pensacola’s great Krewes and a Grand Parade. Postponing means a slight change in  celebration, but means we gather as Krewes and citizens to celebrate together.  

“The spike in hospitalizations makes a postponement of celebrations logical” says Mayor  Grover Robinson. “At City Hall, we recognize how important the community of our great  Krewes is, and we want to celebrate all together. We look forward to gathering after this pause,  outside and being socially responsible at Roger Scott, and in the historic streets of  Downtown.”  

The one-time, unique 2021 Carnivale Celebration will begin in May and is set to include a  Kick-Off celebration to ignite the experience, as well as a Grand Parade, and a few other  unique and exciting experiences inspired by the local krewes, and will lead into Pensacola’s  celebration of its history, Fiesta. The Grand Fiesta Parade will be on Friday June 4, 2021.  

For those who have already purchased tickets to the original Kick-Off event, all tickets remain  valid for the 2021 Carnivale Kick-Off Celebration in May and will include a unique gift from  the Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc. team as a special thank-you for your support in 2020 during a  unique year that we have all been forced to deal with. This includes VIPs and VIP upgrades.  All ticket buyers will receive direct email correspondence in the coming days, which will  provide more information. 

The 2021 Kick-Off will take place in the same location and will include the traditional  Blessing of the Krewes along with a concert style dance party featuring beverages and food.  Tickets to the 2021 Carnivale Kick-Off Celebration will again be available for purchase  starting on February 1, 2021 on the Pensacola Mardi Gras website. Beginning on February 1,  2021, tickets will be re-priced at $50 for general admission and $120 for VIP tickets, which  will be limited in number. More details regarding what is included in the ticket purchase will  be announced.  

Pensacola Mardi Gras is not cancelled, it is postponed, and Pensacola is following other Gulf  Coast Communities in re-envisioning a classic celebration of our community, Krewes, and  customs. A series of events will tie multiple celebrations together, with a Kick-Off in the end  of May, (the precise date of the Kick-Off Celebration and Blessing of the Krewes will be  announced soon) a Grand Carnivale Parade (replacing the Grand Mardi Gras Parade) on  Saturday May 29, 2021 (Memorial Weekend), Fiesta Days on Wednesday June 2, 2021 and the  Grand Fiesta Parade on Friday June 4, 2021.  

Although the 2021 Mardi Gras Kick-Off event is being moved to the summer, the spirit of  Mardi Gras will once again fill Pensacola as Krewes and patrons alike will gather to celebrate  a mini-Carnivale season. The headliners and performers will carry over into the Carnivale  Celebration to provide entertainment at the outdoor venue.  

The Carnivale Kick-Off and Grand Parade will still be a series of socially responsible events  that include masks (Laisse le Masque le Faire!), socially distanced seating and dance areas,  temperature checks at the entrances, and all transactions including entrance and purchases will  be cashless using a special RFID technology.  

For more information about Pensacola Mardi Gras, please visit our website,  pensacolamardigras.com, email us at pensacolamardigras@gmail.com, or call us at 850-465- 4657.

Mission Restore Hope – Raised over $275,000

Posted on: September 28th, 2020 by brent

Mission Restore Hope

Channel 3 News, Cat Country and United Way of West Florida hosted “Mission: Restore Hope:” an effort to help our community recover from Hurricane Sally.

Our community proudly raised over $275,000 for the United Way of West Florida.  The money will ALL stay local.

You can still donate:  TEXT 850RELIEF TO 41444

VISIT uwwf.org/sally

BACKGROUND ON HOW FUNDS ARE USED: 

United Way of West Florida will administer the funds.  The money will support recovery efforts for those who were impacted by Hurricane Sally, including assistance to households, building supplies and materials, and support for underinsured and uninsured individuals.   Funds will remain in the community to support recovery efforts.

What the United Way of West Florida is doing:

We are working around the clock to support Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, as we recover TOGETHER from Hurricane Sally.

United Way of West Florida is here before, during, and after disasters. While there is much work to be done in helping our community recover, your gift of money or time helps families get back in their homes and give our vulnerable community members the care they need. UWWF works with local organizations to thoughtfully build strategies to create resilient communities.

WAYS TO AID IN RELIEF EFFORTS

GIVE

The most immediate and useful way to support recovery efforts in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties is through financial assistance. This allows relief organizations to purchase and provide the supplies and resources most needed. To donate to UWWF’s Hurricane Relief Fund, text 850RELIEF to 41444.

VOLUNTEER

You can also support recovery efforts through volunteerism. We have combined our efforts with Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE) to coordinate volunteers for the impacted areas. If you would like to support those affected by Hurricane Sally, please create a profile through the UWWF online volunteer portal, GET CONNECTED. BRACE will recruit volunteers by using this platform.
